Strategic storage vendors
In this hilarious post over at StorageMojo.com, an EMC lawyer issues a “cease and desist” order over the recent publication on the site of an EMC price list, calling it a “trade secret.” He uses some ominous language indeed in his missive, which is reprinted in full by StorageMojo blogger Robin Harris.
Now that you know the facts of the matter I expect an email from you confirming that you have examined the links and documents provided above and that you now understand that EMC’s price list is not a trade secret, despite what you were led to believe by the person who referred StorageMojo.com to you.
Also, you might want to consult with EMC’s public relations and analyst relations groups as to the advisability of continuing to press confidentiality claims against StorageMojo. The internet community – StorageMojo.com had over 100,000 visitors last month – does not take kindly to attempts to limit the free flow of information and First Amendment rights.
We have to say we also got a chuckle out of the Obi-Wan Kenobi reference.
